Before you storm off and claim I am lying or that I am simply trying to sell a fool's dream I want you to just take a second to hear what I have to say.
When I first quit my job and started on a crusade to help others do the same most of those who knew me called me an idiot (if they were feeling kind). Nearly six months later though and more than a few of them have started to ask why I always seem so happy when they see me.
As of today I have to admit I only make about as much as I did before I quit, and that isn't exactly a fortune, but every week my income rises. This isn't about the money though. Hell in my first month or so I made next to nothing but I was still happier than I had been in a long time.
You see for me the money is just a way of ensuring that I get to keep doing what I love and what I love is helping to show people a real alternative to the drudgery and modern day slavery that is working for a wage.
90% of us think that that is just the way it is and that there really is no alternative. We are brought up to think that the only path to a good life is to go to school, do well enough to go to university and then to find a job. Even after we have a job we know we have to work harder and better than those around us to slowly climb the ladder.
By the time we are somewhere we feel comfortable most of us have, without even noticing, grown old and tired. Society though no longer needs to be like that. Sure we still need people to get that factory job, to be our lawyer and to serve us coffee but what we also need is more people with vision and with dreams. People willing to take a chance and to build a business all of their own.
While everyone else fights to hold onto their job in an ever more competitive market digital entrepreneurs are crying out for people to come and join them. So why is it that such a wonderful opportunity is being so badly ignored that many of us find ourselves begging our friends and relatives to ditch the desk and get online?
For me the reason I hear time and time again is disbelief and mistrust. So many people when I explain what I do look at me like I am one step from being a criminal. Like I am doing something morally wrong. It is a hard stereotype to get past. Don't get me wrong I am all too aware aware that there are a million and one scams on the net but if I am going to be honest the net is really no worse than what goes on on most high streets.
All I can really say though is do your homework. Don't give money to a Nigerian prince and make sure you get a money back guarantee. Always look for reputable sites and if in doubt Google or Youtube the company or person in question. Remember too that if your gut says t feels wrong you may just be right.
All that being said I stick to what I said in the beginning I am proud that I deliver people an education not a job. That I help them get the freedom of a self-controlled life and that I never have to put my morals to one side just to earn a living.
If you want to join the crusade and you want to be free from the 9 to 5 come and see what we can offer, after all what harm can looking do?

Many successful people share a belief that they are not special, instead they understand that we all have the creative spark needed most of us just don't nurture it. Take Tony Robbins for example. The man is not a success because he was lucky. He worked hard and he trained his mind to see past all the little speed bumps that stop most of us dead in our tracks.
The same goes for the likes of Richard Branson, Bill Gates and Steve Jobs. All of these men excelled more in their ability to realize their goals despite the difficulty rather than because it was easy for them.
Another, less known, figure that comes to mind when thinking about those who saw past the negatives and the problems and succeeded in building for themselves a life they truly loved is Stuart Ross.
That then is not only the secret but the goal of a true entrepreneur. Not the money, not the fame but the ability to get up everyday and relish the challenges to be faced and to simply live the life of freedom the have been able to build for themselves.

To make a great start to 2016 I wanted to take a little time to explain what it is that the Six Figure Mentors do.
Even though Stuart Ross really does say it best I wanted to share with you a little bit of it from our side. For a couple of years now we have worked as affiliates through the SFM and as such I think we are in a pretty good position to explain how it all works.
Starting out just looking for a new way to make a living we came across the growing digital industry and for completely different reasons we decided we wanted to get involved.
Doing research wasn't as easy as it seemed after all there is a whole lot of opportunity out there and a whole lot of rip off merchants too. After making a couple of bad calls and nearly deciding to just give it up and go back to our day jobs we were lucky enough to stumble a cross a video made by Stuart and Jay.
I know it is a cliche but it really has changed our lives. After going through their training and, I have to admit, taking quite some time to finally get into the right mindset and have a little faith we got the ball rolling. Basically they not only gave us all the information and training we needed to get in the door but their ongoing support network has kept us from straying too far from the path.
After we finished up our training we started working as affiliates for them selling their training, not because we had any need to we could have sold anything, but because of all the resources and communities we had come across the Six Figure Mentors really are the best.
Even now that we have some practice and know, mostly, what we are doing we still promote them everywhere we can because we just love what they do.
Regardless of whether you are a two finger typer, like me, or a full blown techie I know they can help you out. Don't take my word for it though or even Stuart's word for it go on and try it.
